Tulsa Community College will celebrate the achievements of its most recent Nursing graduates with a pinning ceremony next week. On Tuesday, 102 individuals will be honored for completing TCC’s Associate Degree Nursing Program. This is the second largest graduating class of nurses, one year after TCC saw its largest class of 103 graduates on Tuesday, May 14, 2024 between 7-8 p.m.
The ceremony will be at the TCC Southeast Campus Van Trease Performing Arts Center for Education, 10300 E 81st St, Tulsa, OK 74133.
The College’s Nursing program continues to add capacity each semester through Fall 2027 in an ongoing effort to strengthen the area nursing workforce. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of RNs is projected to grow 6 percent from 2022 to 2032, faster than the average for all occupations. Demand for healthcare services is expected to increase due to an aging population that has more complex medical needs.
TCC offers two distinct nursing tracks—the Career Mobility (LPN/Paramedic to RN) Track and the Traditional (RN) Track. The Career Mobility Track, spanning three semesters, provides an accelerated pathway for LPN/Paramedics to transition into registered nurses. The Traditional Track, completed over four semesters, serves as a comprehensive route for aspiring RNs. Graduates of the program earn an Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree and are eligible to take the NCLEX-RN exam.
